You are cordially invited to attend an exclusive event with Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017. Bharara played a key role in prosecuting some of the most high-profile cases of the last decade, including Bernie Madoff, Wall Street firms, and Time Square Bomber Faizal Shahzad. During his tenure, the New York Times called Bharara one of “the nation’s most aggressive and outspoken prosecutors.” In 2012, he was on the cover of TIME magazine and named to its list of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.”
Your evening will include an elegant dinner service followed by a moderated conversation with Preet Bharara. He’ll discuss his highly acclaimed new book, Doing Justice: A Prosecutor’s Thoughts on Crime, Punishment, and the Rule of Law. Publisher’s Weekly calls the book, “a page-turning work of practical moral philosophy” and Kirkus says it’s an “engaging tour from beginning to end.”
Bharara’s compelling conversational style is known for including amazing anecdotes from his lengthy and illustrious career. He also delivers fascinating insights about the nature of justice captured through approachable human moments. His words inspire audiences to think about the importance of ethics in our daily lives, within our businesses, and throughout our society.
